This week, Jaguar showed the world the production version of the new F-Type Project 7, confirming it will be offered for sale in limited quantities.

The F-Type Project 7 made its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England, celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Jaguar D-type race car which inspired its design.

Jaguar says the Project 7 will be the highest performance version of the F-Type, only producing 250 hand built copies to be shared around the world.

The car brings the true open roadster design from the Project 7 concept unveiled in 2013, including the distinctive D-type-inspired fairing and folding soft top.

Under the hood is a fire-breathing 5.0-liter supercharged V8 with 575 horsepower, up 25 from the F-Type R Coupe.

Special to the Project 7 are carbon-fiber aerodynamic accouterments, a unique suspension, carbon ceramic brakes, and torque vectoring control.

Jaguar says the Project 7 will accelerate from 60 mph in 3.8 seconds which makes it well, blisteringly fast for a rear-wheel drive car. The F-Type Project 7 arrives in mid-2015. Better call your Jaguar dealer now.
